Halle Berry is looking #FLY in her all black everything for the March 2011 cover of EBONY Magazine.While she has on a frilly, lingerie esque black dress eating a fruit, she dishes on everything, including her daughter Nahla.
At SFPL we appreciate visuals that we see on magazine covers (and everywhere else) The simple background, the black lingerie dress, the cherry being chewed softly provide for a very dynamic photo.
It sounds like Halle’s holding nothing back when it comes to how she identifies her almost 3-year-old daughter with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry
“I feel like she’s black. I’m black and I’m her mother and I believe in the one-drop theory. I’m not going to put a label on it. I had to decide for myself and that’s what she’s going to have to decide – how she identifies herself in the world. And I think, largely, that will be based on how the world identifies her. That’s how I identified myself. But I feel like she’s black.”
On dating outside her race
“Well, first thing I want to say is that I’m very connected to my community and I want black people to know that I haven’t abandoned them because I’ve had a child with a man outside of my race and I’m dating someone now outside of my race who is Spanish and French. I have never been more clear about who I am as a black woman. The people I have dated sort of hold up a mirror to me and help me realize more of who I really am.”
